Connecting to a Server

In order to use SchemaAgent Client, you must connect the application to a server first. When you start SchemaAgent Client, the ic_not-connected icon is displayed in the upper right corner of the application and the Connect to SchemaAgent Server dialog box pops up.

You have two options to use SchemaAgent Client:

 

Work locally: This will start a standalone LocalServer on your PC which you can configure from within SchemaAgent Client
Connect to network server: This will connect to a network-based SchemaAgent Server which must already be running and allows for several users being connected. To configure SchemaAgent Server, you have to open the server application and this configuration is available to all connected clients.

 

If a SchemaAgent server connection already exists, you have to close this connection before making a new connection.

 

 

To connect to a server:

1.Select the menu option Tools | Connect to Server or click the Connect to Server ic_connect-to-server icon in the Extras toolbar. The Connect to SchemaAgent Server dialog box opens.

Select Work locally to start and connect to the standalone LocalServer. The Configure Paths tab is added to the Explorer window.
Select Connect to network server and choose a SchemaAgent Server to connect to from the drop-down list.

 

The search paths are displayed in the Explorer window.

 

3.Click OK.

 

 

To close a connection:
